Saṅkrandana (सङ्क्रन्दन) refers to a name of Indra, according to chapter 1.2 [ādīśvara-caritra] of Hemacandra’s 11th century Triṣaṣṭiśalākāpuruṣacaritra: an ancient Sanskrit epic poem narrating the history and legends of sixty-three illustrious persons in Jainism.


“[...] Then Maghavan made an image of the son of Nābhi, and put it down at the side of Lady Śrī Marudeva. He made himself five-fold; then there were five Śakras. Suitable devotion to the Master cannot be made by people with one body. Of these, one Saṅkrandana came forward, bowed, and said reverently, ‘O Blessed One, allow me’, and with auspicious devotion took the Lord of the World, as if he were good fortune incarnate, with hands covered with gośīrṣa-sandal”.
